Choosing the décor for your bedrooms can be difficult. It is the one place where you can always relax and just be yourself. It is also the first thing you will see when you wake up every morning; and this is why it is one of the most important rooms in the house when it comes to decorating and interior painting.



Bedroom Design Elements

Even before you start choosing the paint colors for your bedroom there are several elements that must be taken into consideration.  Interior painting, furnishings, accessories and wallpaper designs can all work together to establish the room’s own character and personality that is an extension of your own. You will want to achieve a modern and contemporary look while establishing a décor that is easy to maintain.

The accessories, furnishings and fabrics all used in bedroom décor should blend together into one theme which depends on the decorating style you have chosen. For fabric items such as draperies, curtains or other window treatments the texture will need to carefully considered. For the modern bedroom it is likely that you will not want to use real heavy, velvety draperies but rather choose a soothing fabric since it is a room you will want to use to relax in the evenings. The modern décor incorporates a lot of geometric designs and straight lines into the decorating scheme.

Accessories can add some glamour to the bedroom. These include items like lamps, wall hangings or nightstands. These accessories are used minimally and very smartly in today’s modern bedroom design. These are very important elements that must be considered when thinking about choosing other decorative options including paint colors. Furnishings are also an important part of the whole room décor and must be balanced out with accessories, paint colors and other room elements. The style of the bed and other furnishings will largely depend on the chosen decorating scheme. It is also an option to paint all the furnishings when doing the interior painting so that they all match and are complimentary of the room’s décor and design.

Color Scheme

Choosing paint colors may be one of the most important parts of choosing the bedroom décor. This can be a relatively easy task if you know what type of design you want to use. The colors used in interior painting really set the mood for the room so it is very important to choose the best paint colors. Cooler colors like blues and greens work well in most modern bedroom designs as they are very natural colors. They can also be very soothing to the occupant. Earth tones such as yellows, oranges or browns can have a very comforting effect, especially in subdued shades.  But caution is needed when using some of these colors as if the yellow it too bright it can cause irritation and some oranges can create energy. Black is usually to dark to use in a bedroom, but in the modern minimalist design it can be used sparingly along with other colors to create a stunning effect. Most colors can be used for interior painting in the bedroom as long as it complements the overall style.
